jdh Insights: October 2019 Preferred Business Partner

October 2019 Preferred Business Partner: jdh Insights

As a member of the Arizona Technology Council, you have greater access to Joan Hibdon at jdh Insights. Joan is a certified coach and human resources leader with over 20 years of experience helping organizations achieve breakthrough results by focusing on their most important and complex asset, their humans.

Ineffective leadership, a mismatch of values, a lack of alignment around goals and vision, a breakdown in internal communications, and an inability to adapt to market changes are some common ways companies fail at the people level.

Joan’s approach is holistic in nature, which has proven to be the most effective way to align an organization’s people around their culture, mission, vision and objectives. When your people are truly engaged in the organization, everyone wins (customers, business, and employees). Joan provides customized solutions based on each company’s human needs at four levels:

  • HR consulting to executives
  • Leadership development training
  • Team effectiveness sessions 
  • Individual coaching to current and emerging leaders

HR Consulting
Joan utilizes her two decades of corporate experience in HR to provide consulting to company leaders primarily in the areas of HR strategy development, organizational design approaches, and culture-related needs. For day-to-day HR needs, jdh Insights has several preferred partners who are available to assist.

Leadership Development & Team Effectiveness Training
Joan develops leadership and team effectiveness training sessions by learning the unique needs of the business and customizing the content to align with the organizational culture. She facilitates each session by sharing her expertise and helping participants connect their own experiences to the training in order to improve long-term retention of the materials. Those who have attended have Joan’s sessions, consistently say, “I am able to immediately put what I’ve learned to use.” 

Individual Coaching: Joan is a certified CTI and ICF coach.
Joan’s approach to coaching is tailored to meet the unique needs of individuals she works with. She brings introspection, intuition, and her HR experiences to help coaching clients navigate their way through complex situations to attain and sustain their goals. Joan leverages her certifications in several assessments to co-design a comprehensive development plan with clients that aligns with their desired outcomes.

One of Joan’s coaching clients describes the experience as, “Truly transformational. Coaching has been the best investment I’ve ever made in myself. I am more self-aware and effective in my organization because Joan consistently provides me with tools to come at all situations from a place of curiosity, compassion, and questioning. My progress in coaching has, not coincidentally, led to the biggest promotion of my career.”
